Making the Most of Downtime with HBO

This post is sponsored by HBO. Opinions remain my own. 

My day to day schedule is nothing short of… hectic. Between a traditional (but not traditional at all) agency job, a few blogs, some freelancing, a great slew of friends who I’d like to see every once awhile… there is never apparently enough time in the day.

Most every morning I’m out the door by 7:30am, in my desk not too long after – only after a quick stop at Starbucks (my barista knows my name and sees me coming, bless her soul). Traditional evenings include event hopping, drinks with friends, or holing up early to work on writing blog posts or getting some freelance work done. One of my favorite things to do, though, amidst all the chaos, is keep up with my HBO! 

When I first graduated from university, it took me about two months to find a job. While that may seem like a short amount of time – I was going insane. The only thing that kept me from going mad was that I had begun to binge HBO’s Game of Thrones. 

Immediately, I fell in love with Daenerys Targaryen – blondes unite! Daenerys has become infamous for being a kick-ass, take-no-names female, something that I identified with and couldn’t stop trying to emulate. While I was stuck applying endlessly to jobs, I was working my way through Game of Thrones and feeling continuously inspired to do so!

Now, one of my favorite things to do in my spare time is keep up to date with my HBO Now. I don’t have cable (do you know anyone who does?) and HBO Now is always ready on my iPhone, iPad, desktop, streaming to my TV… you name it. Whether I’m getting freelance done in the background or getting ready with my friends to go out, I love having my HBO Now in order to stay as inspired as ever!

Additionally – this November 18th, Jon Stewart will host Night of Too Many Stars on HBO, a live event benefiting NEXT for Autism. Some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities will arrive in order to support autism education. Join the cause and you could be in the room with too many stars, sharing a photo of the “too many” in your life. Too many shoes, too many laughs, too many shows to catch up on? Let HBO know on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags #NightOfTooManyStars and #Contest!
